Our holidays could always do with a little more cheer, a little more cheese, and a little more charcuterie. Thankfully, Board at Home has just the holiday cheese board kits to bring the excitement to the table. The creators of these artisanal cheese board kits have announced the launch of limited-edition holiday cheese board kit collections. “Falling for Fromage,” “Ski’n Solo,” and “Fireside with Friends” are available now for next-day or two-day delivery.
As stated in the release, Board at Home began making artisanal cheese board kits to support small-scale cheese producers, dairy farmers, and other artisanal makers whose businesses have been severely impacted by COVID-19. With each kit, consumers will be supporting a variety of businesses from cheesemakers and meat curers to bakeries and jam makers.
The Falling for Fromage ($85) is a French-inspired cheese collection featuring the fall flavors of France, including a wheel of Traditional Brie from Marin French Cheese, Marinated Cabecou from Laura Chenel, Fabrique Delices Truffle Mousse, Black Mission Fig Cake from The Girl and The Fig, and a box of Rustic Bakery Flatbread Crackers.
For Ski’n Solo ($75), an indulgent collection of comforting sweet treats await, perfect for après ski or a stay-at-home snow day. This cozy kit features a wedge of Dry Monterey Jack from Rumiano Cheese Company, Sweet Dreams spreadable fresh goat cheese from Cypress Grove, a box of Rustic Bakery Vanilla Shortbread cookies, Dick Taylor Peppermint Drinking Chocolate, and a one-of-a-kind handmade ceramic mug.
Fireside with Friends ($120) is a grand curation of spectacular holiday treats perfect for families and intimate holiday gatherings. The abundant collection includes four varieties of cheese: Dry Monterey Jack from Rumiano Cheese Company; a Stilton-inspired Bodega Blue from WM Cofield; a washed-rind, Taleggio-style cheese from Nicasio Square; and Tuscan Temptress, a mozzarella with basil and sun-dried tomato from Rumiano Cheese Company. In addition, the box comes with Fabrique Delices Truffle Mousse; Mexican-spiced pork salami from Llano Seco; a box of Rustic Bakery Flatbread Crackers; a Dick Taylor Craft Chocolate Holiday Bar with Bourbon soaked pecans, candied maple syrup, and orange; a box of Rustic Bakery Cacao Nib Shortbread Cookies; a jar of California Wildflower Honey from Chico Honey Company; and Candy Cane Almonds from Sohnery Farms.
To bring more festive cheer, the company announced it is now booking virtual holiday parties and wine and cheese tastings led by California’s finest artisanal winemakers and cheesemakers for groups of 10 or more.
Board at Home also offers a rotating selection of cheese board kits and gift sets featuring an assortment of small-batch, hand-crafted cheeses, charcuterie, crackers, jam, nuts, and other perfectly paired accompaniments sourced from California’s finest makers and artisans who utilize ethically sourced ingredients and sustainable practices. In addition to supporting the artisans, Board at Home donates five percent of proceeds to The LEE Initiative to provide emergency assistance to small, independent restaurants and their workers.
